Description

The day begins by pick up approximately from 7:00AM from your Hotel in Punta Arenas and then, we go to the Tres Puentes terminal to take the ferry that in 2 hours of navigation crosses the Strait of Magellan to the Island of Tierra del Fuego. The disembarkation is in Chilota Bay and from there it's a 5-kilometer trip where you will reach the city of Porvenir; to see its Plaza de Armas Selknam's main square. Later we will visit their small but very interesting museum, where we can find a viewpoint of the city.

Later, we continue the trip to the King Penguin Park, 114 km away from the city. This trip takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes and a large part of it is skirting Bahía Inútil. The Park is a unique sighting place where following the path we can observe a group of about 30 to 40 specimens of this species at a distance of between 15 to 20 meters approximately. After 1 hour in the place, we will continue our trip observing from the route the helmet of the Estancia Josefina, one of the most important of the island.

We will also visit the Cerro Sombrero oil town. Finally, we will cross again the Strait of Magellan, this time for its narrowest part (Primera Angostura, only 20 minutes of navigation). Depending on the date of travel, times and hours of light we can stop at the abandoned Estancia San Gregorio, one of the first and most historic in the region and then return to Punta Arenas.
